supply side of the same kind we had under ronald reagan. >> would you change anything you wrote in the original "wealth and poverty." >> i would have changed quite a lot. i mean, there. all kind of detail that have changed. but i found that do try to change one thing would be to change everything. so, you know, you have in to a bunch of editorial work. instead of changing it, i essentially retained the old book and added 30,000 new words at the beginning and end. and revision of my monetary policy in the middle. and so it's a new book. but it contains the old book. >> and when you say a revights of the monetary politician. what cow do you mean by that? >> well, i fail to make clear in the original version of wealthy and poverty that i believe that stable currency. i don't believe in floating currency. i agree with steve forbes that foreign currency can is standard of value by which every imeerp europe has to guide the investment and decisions is like floating the hour so that people wouldn't have to work so many. one month you'd have the hour worth 50 minutes. the next is 70 min
husband of 25 years earlier. the friendship between the royal family and ronald and nancy reagan was the closest of all the american presidents. the reagans had first met prince charles was in california while serving with the real navy in the early 1970s. they had an equally strong relationship with the queen and prince philip, as well as her sister, princess margaret, the queen mother, and her cousin, princess alexandra. they kept an extensive personal correspondence that i was given permission to read at the presidential library out in california, the reagan library. the letters tell a story of infection and thoughtfulness on both sides, over more than three decades. correspondence that continues to this day with nancy reagan. in june of 1982, when the reagans were in europe for summit meetings, the queen invited them to stay at windsor castle. which was the first such personal invitation for an american presidential couple. not only did she arrange such a dedicated telephone line, but she had the first shower installed in the more than 900-year-old castle, because she was tol
became. the big issue, big change began in 198 1980 that goes with the election of ronald reagan ronald reagan brought with them to washington a very underrated figure in a recent american history, somehow i don't think gets his due as an important person. that's edwin meese because edwin meese at first was in flash and then attorney general. said look, there has been a liberal agenda at the supreme court. there needs to be a conservative agenda at the supreme court. what was that agenda? expand executive power and end racial preferences, speed up execution, welcome religion into the public sphere, and above all, reverse roe v. wade and allow states once again to ban abortion. a big part of the reagan revolution was the arrival of washington of a group of young and committed conservative lawyers who wanted to work in that, on behalf of that agenda, who were two of the best and the brightest of that group? john roberts and samuel alito. 1970 -- in 1985, a memo at the solicitor general's office, alito wrote what can be made of this opportunity to advance the goal of bringing about the eve
, the big change began in 1980 with the election of ronald reagan because he brought with him to washington a very underrated figure in the recent history, some i don't think this is due as an important area and that is edwin meese because he was first an advisor and then as attorney general said look, they're has been a liberal agenda at the supreme court of their needs to be a conservative agenda at the supreme court. what was the agenda? expand executive power and attend to a system for americans from a speech that execution, welcome religion into the public sphere and above all, reverse roe v wade in the last months again to the abortion. a big part of the revolution was the arrival in washington of a group of young and committed conservative lawyers who wanted it to work on behalf of the agenda. word the best and brightest in your group? john roberts and samuel alito. in 1985 in a memo plotting the litigation strategy of the solicitor general's office, he wrote what can be made of this opportunity to advance the goal of bringing about the eventual overruling of roe v wade? later that y
others take a different turn, a better turn, in our country. ronald reagan said we fought a war on poverty and poverty won. well well-known, everybody heard that. the first thing i want to say, and i, of course, say in the book is that ronald reagan was wrong. [laughter] about many things. [laughter] the fact is, and we need to celebrate this that the public policies that we have from social security to a long list of earned income tax credit and food stamps and so on are keeping 40 million people out of poverty so that out of the 46 million people we have in poverty, which is certainly bad enough and then some, we would be at 8 # -- 86 million without the -- all of the policies that we have. we have been successful in our public policy. there's a paradox here that -- or an apparent paradox because what i said is absolutely true, but at the same time, if we look at the trends in the percentage of people who are poor in this country, in 1973, we had the lowest percentage that we've had since we started counting in the early 60s. that was 11.1%, and when bill clinton left off afte
be old enough to remember in 1987 were president ronald reagan did try to use the appointment of robert bork who was a leading conservative intellectual of his day to press beyond the bounds of the ronald reagan administration could've gotten from a conference or the democrats who had to give back the senate and it was a huge fight and was really a fight over defining the mainstream. you know, is it part of the mainstream to have a judge who criticizes griswold and as connecticut in 1965 decision that the stock which is the right to birth control. most people think the was a pretty good decision, but he thought it was a very bad decision so the battle focused on a few key things as that. was a big constitutional teachable moment for the country, and people have drawn a very different lessons. but what it tells us is the mainstream, quote, the mainstream remains aver econ testable concept. what is going to happen first in the confirmation process? i was a little surprised "the new york times" has a wonderful interactive tool on the web site where it has one of these clouds of how many ti
to make the case because otherwise you have after ronald reagan, a brief prosperity, but if people don't revise the role of government and ending economy, they don't stabilize in the up and look at a crisis to catalog the right up where we are and the gets bigger. we got to occupy the high moral ground. free markets based in morality, meeting the needs and wants of other people. and enhances the sense of humanity in a way that we don't even realize. that's what we've got to get across because otherwise people say government is inefficient, but by golly, they mean well. no, they don't. they are the very things they accuse private markets have been. >> and "the freedom manifesto" can you talk about one of the political issues of although diverse sources of u. of tennessee eventually get forced to become part of a big company. and so you don't get the microsoft and out on the scale we get in this country. he the 1970s. terrible decade. the wood is emerging, microsoft, charles schwab, southwest airlines, fedex and others because you have a couple system that could nurture, get them to grow
and ronald reagan the second term as the productive term, the big achievement so it's hard to know whether the republican party will -- where they will push the blame if that happens, but the question is how they decide to spend the next four years and i think it's very hard to tell but there is some hope in looking back at both clinton and reagan. >> he was also a far right to limit took running the republican party at the time whoever they equivalent was a time and. but in fact he wasn't. life was a little more complicated by the fearful analogy. >> he raised taxes -- >> i think that's why the parties in opposition tend to be less responsible than parties of power. i think you probably agree. >> agree from your point of view i can think of the times when the other party the of irresponsibly in opposition and the question as it seems to me it from the is elected and you have the party that you think would be responsible and is in the position they have to govern and we will see what happens if that genuinely tends to pull the party is more towards the sector whenever someone becomes presi
, the teachers, staff, and students? >> i happened to have been at the high school. the legacy of ronald reagan, i can look out here right now and probably, so many people here tonight have graduated from reagan or will see this show or stay in constant contact. in the spring, we brought back alumni from each decade. we have people that love reagan. for our kids, it would've meant leaving their neighborhood school, a school where that is their home. that is where their voices are heard and where i listen to them and we do what needs to be done. kids have a voice in our school. for our teachers, it would have meant having to find another job, go somewhere else, start again, the new focus, but for our school district and state, the loss of those schools in communities that have built and aligned their history, that is a great thing across the nation. we can bring in other types of schools. but some of the most successful people that we have in the world and the nation have graduated from public school has been products of public schools. it would have been a lot for everybody, whether they do or
thing is that in today's politics, ronald reagan would probably be too moderate for the party. he raised taxes i think four times. he pleaded with the congress to pass a clean debt ceiling expansion when something went terribly wrong in lebanon. he didn't say we are going to stay the course. he got out. so it wasn't as polarized than. i was just like to see some politicians who can have strong views. they complete their base and all that, but at the end of the day, they know they have to cut a deal that their responsibility as elected officials is to govern and produce bills. >> thanks. >> so we have a great tax system that is systematically moving money from the middle and lower cassis to the upper classes. isn't this exactly the kind of thing the constitution was designed to prevent? so why is networking? >> it is not working because the money that is in politics made it so. that is why k street house all those lobbyists, while the industries beat down the doors of the senate finance committee and house ways and means committee. all those provisions didn't get in there by happenstance.
a single house of congress from their own political party. ronald reagan did have the senate for four years but he never had a full congress that was republican. bill clinton did have a full congress that was republican but bill clinton was democrat. and you have fragmented government, george w. bush had a republican congress for four to eight years. george bush scarcely had the best domestic legislative accomplishment that could rival lyndon johnson or to be fair richard nixon. perhaps the 2012 elections will generate a unified government that will pass its preferred programs but it would be foolhardy, most observers at this time is the more or less maintenance of the status quo in which barack obama will continue to occupy the oval office as the republicans continue to patrol by reversed number of the house of representatives with the senate at this time being up for grabs. so we should be open for the possibility that the current election will fit the shakespearean description of sound and fury signifying nothing or very little with regard to domestic policy and that is what i am focusin
was in the federal government, ronald reagan was president and reagan said the government is not the solution. government is the problem. and he thought it was very funny to say oh, i'm from government and i'm here to help you. that was a good laugh line at a republican meeting. i think the democrats, despite what is going on, have stretched out their plans, barack obama agrees that there would be no taxes in the new budget, just spending cuts. the house democrats and house republicans would not accept that. so i don't think it's the same on both sides, and i think you ought to suggest them also in oklahoma. [laughter] >> i do suggest them in oklahoma and everywhere, all over the country. i think people are going to have different ideas about which party is worse than where they came from. certainly, you mentioned obama's outreach, and i think he did find an outreach. when he did, nancy pelosi said no, we won the election. it is kind of you know, it's kind of hard. some people are saying totally outrageous and nasty things. what we have to do is break it down where people like that can sit do
thing about george bush, he is not ronald reagan. >> largely as as a result of the policy and priority of reagan administration, more people are becoming poor and staying poor in the country than many times since world war ii. ♪ >> if there's anything left ronald reagan trickle down theory it seems to be anxiety which seems to be trickle down through every segment of our society. ♪ if you give complearns thomas a little flower you think you have david talking. here is a man who is against everything that has lifted the level of life of -- [inaudible] ♪ i egg and butter many black men do a [inaudible] >> has hard too. he's remember rehenceble person. ♪ your words trickle down terrorist who face their agenda on division, exclusion, and fear. do you think middle class americans are in need of protection. ♪ the new republican majority congress took a big step on the legislative agenda to demolish or damage government-aid programs many of them designed to help children and the poor. ♪ >> the bombing in home city has focused renewed attention on the rhetoric coming f
with ronald reagan and tip o neill, they probably didn't agree on much of anything, yet they were able to have an affable relationship and be decent to one another and not tear each other down in the process. we have to get back to that and keep talking about this. that's why again, governor schwarzenegger, i want to thank you for getting this started. if we don't do it won't happen. >> secretary can you talk about the reaction. i come out of the goodness of my heart, recently sent to the senate press secretary in the two senators of pennsylvania, senator to me and senator casey of the two men themselves and their staffs at a softball game. they had a good time, they had a few beers, they put it on their face but page on both of them told me they got absolute vituperative remarks from their supporters. how could you possibly can so that the enemy like that? the senator from the road state, unit think that they would be a certain common interest here, but that was the reaction of the voters. they'll come you have your hand out. anyone who wants to take that, take it. >> i think what is happenin
back to ronald reagan and tip o'neill when social security was planned to go broke so it's not as if it's never happened before, and it has to happen to the estimate you think ronald reagan could be elected as a candidate to they come governor crist? >> i think would be difficult. i grew up at my during ronald reagan. one of the things i admired was his style, his grace and we need to have that back in the national dialogue and politics and the ability to get along and cooperate and respect each other, and until we get that mutual respect it is going to be very difficult to move things forward in this country but i believe we will get there because we have to get their and i want to thank governor schwarzenegger for inviting us here and having the leadership to do that. >> secretary, if you believe that lyndon johnson could be nominated as a democratic candidate today? >> i do. i do think he would because from the moderate wing, the clinton johnson but despite the joke about the governor -- [laughter] i noticed arnall -- arnold said something about body mass at the beginning. [laughter]
, ronald reagan speech writer and adviser has long argued that there is no such thing as a bradley effect. the bradley effect is named for mayor tom bradley of los angeles when he ran against george deukmejian did not do as well in the final balloting is he had been doing in the polling. for years pundits have ascribe that to the brad the affected people are free to say they're not going to vote for african-american because they don't want to be up to the prejudice he they're talking anonymously to pollsters. and he has all the data, and i believe him, but i believe that even if the bradley effect was not true in 1982, latest here in 2012. there is a significant number of people, not for reasons related to race, but for reasons related to the nature of the democratic partisanship who are refusing to tell pollsters that they're not going to vote for president obama. there are quite frankly scared of the machine. and if you are a fan of chick-fil-a you know what i'm talking about. [applause] interestingly enough their is a potential vice presidential pick for each of these regions in each o
was by ronald reagan and democratic speaker tip o'neill, but it is the basic structure is sound. but i want to talk about the values behind social security and medicare and then talk about medicare because that's the big driver of our deficits right now. you know, my grandmother, some of you know, helped raise me. my grandparents day. my grandfather died a while back. my grandmother died three days before i was elected a president. she worked her way up, only a high school education, started as the secretary, ended up being the vice president of a local bank. she ended up living alone by choice. and the reason she could be independent was because of social security and medicare. she had worked all her life, but in this money and understood that there was a basic guarantee him a floor under which she could not go. and that is the perspective i bring with entitlements. the name itself implies some sort of dependency and the part of these folks. these are folks who've worked hard, like my grandmother, and millions of people out there are counting on this. so my approach is to say, how do we st
totally looked 12. i got this. i was in the hotel room with ronald and nancy reagan and i think someone said, shouldn't you be doing your homework? and i have a voice than that i have no more unless, and when i looked very innocent, but i just learned to play that actually. you use what you got, right? and i would invariably show up without a pen, someone had to find me at the end, and i could take my little notes and ask questions. now that doesn't happen. i don't think anybody -- i don't have any sense that i'm treated differently because i'm a woman. >> it does happen. that's the hard thing. it still happens. i cover members of congress on capitol hill who thinks it's okay to put their arm around you when you ask a question. there's certain ways people treat you when you're younger in the business. it's not great i will say. >> a good lesson to people. but the other thing that i think is really interesting, the "newshour" when i do the lion's share of all these interviews, i think it's really important to go back to your question, you don't have to print the things that's not true or
giraldi who used to work, i think, for ronald reagan, but i just want to tell you -- ask you is there a way, are you doing anything to get into the debate cycle with obama and romney? >> host: we had a similar question, governor johnson, via twitter. what do you say? >> guest: well, right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission that determines who gets in the debates is the presidential debate commission, and guess what? the presidential debate commission is private, and they're made up of republicans and democrats with absolutely no interest whatsoever in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have filed lawsuits. there doesn't seem to be, there doesn't seem to be much hope, but we filed on anti-trust grounds, something that has not been done before. >> host: how much do these debates matter, gary johnson, and what are you looking forward to hearing on wednesday? >> guest: well, the debates are tantamount to my having a chance at winning. without being on the debates, i think tha
